're going to give you the last question, before we go to mike emanuel. >> i have a civilized question for mr. henry. >> and civilized-- >> my goodness, bob. >> it sounds worse than the negotiations on the hill. >> it's worse, thank goodness this wasn't our situation to try and strike a deal, it would be hopeless. if a deal is struck, how much will the deficit be redied, what kind of numbers are we talking about? >> it would be minuscule. where you'd see the biggest short-term impact would be if you eliminate all of the bush tax rates and they go back to the clinton rates. the government would be bringing in more revenue, but that's going to take some time. that's not going to happen immediately and it's a relatively small amount in terms of what the government is spending every single day. that money would be spent pretty quickly. so, again, because we're now at this point where this is just a short-term deal, any of the major entitlement reforms that would actually bring major spending cuts are sngsly off the table right now. so, to answer your question directly without pointing a finger at
and gentlemen, governor mike hukabee. >> hello, everybody and welcome. delighted to have you here. what a great audience. welcome to "huckabee" from the fox news studios in new york city. as we wrap up 2012 and get ready for 2013, happy to have you with us. now tonight we are going to take a look ahead and look at some of the key issues that will impact us in the new year. first, let's look back at some of the most memorable quotes from last year. the president is going to be sworn in for his second term in a few weeks. so what will four more years of obama bring? he gave as you preview of what is to come in march. >> after the election i will have more flex ability. >> yikes. more flexibility? my goodness this president has exercised more flexibility than a yoga master so far in his first four years. i can't wait to imagine what even more flexibility might look like. i mean, we have twisted the constitution a hundred different ways. we have had executive orders in assisted of legislation. we somehow believe that we will have a strong economy if we continue to punish people who produce and some
standing by at the white house as well as nbc's mike viqueira on capitol hill. some verbal smackdown, basically flipping the lights back on and harry reid taking to the floor to eviscerate speaker boehner. >> the sad part is you often seen the floor opened that way. mitch mcconnell being later today. i'm sure we'll hear something later. to hear it two days after christmas and a matter of days before we go through the fiscal cliff, obviously not encouraging. harry reid says time is running hout. he doesn't know if they could go through the legislative hurdles. if they have the votes around here, they can legislate the sky is green and the grass is blue. that's not an issue. what harry reid is really saying is mitch mcconnell, get on board, don't try to filibuster. of course they're talking about a bill that had raise capital on couples making more than $250,000 a year, and do a few other nuts and bolts that are deemed the bare minimum that the president wants to see done before we hit january 1st. i've got to tell you, though, getting back to the votes, the votes simply aren't there i
for keeping us updated. let's bring in the rest of the options action crew and talk about the markets. mike not very good action today. closing at session lows and futures look to be rough on monday as well. >> yeah, it's interesting, when they filed out of the white house, this was post close, if you're looking at the mini futures, they dropped by about ten handles off that. a lot of disappointment among the futures markets at what isn't going on there. i think there's good reason for that, but it's hard to imagine what could have emerged from this that would have been so much to feel good about. because really with the amount of time they have remaining, whatever solution we're likely to get is only going to be patchwork at best and it's hard to imagine the equity markets will rally strongly off of some half hearted solution. >> it might not have rallied, but we night not see a ten-handle drop in the s&p minis. we should give you context, the volumes are very light, but if we had the catch pork, we could have seen stability in the markets. >> that's right. we wouldn't have seen it drop 15
in the last election, say mike lee or todd akin? >> yes, they had their misfires. but we have high participation and low democracy, what i mean by that is, washington's broken, the senate doesn't work, everything is filibustered and most seats are gerrymandered, if you are a republican, even with the tea party losses, you're more worried about running up against a tea party primary than facing competition in the general election. that's a deeper systemic problem that to their credit, whatever you think of their politics, the activists have learned how to endorse and get ahold of. >> it's not a grassroots movement, it was astroturf. does this indicate that again you have all these rich millionaire figures at the top arguing, book deals and buying out and being quiet. does it really belie the fact that this is not a grassroots movement or do you think that's inevitable with any group that's been funded by deep pocketed people? >> no, that's the problem, they have struggled to create a meaningful grassroots system within all the energy they have built. there are other groups and examp
-- i don't know where he is because i can't see anything with the lights. there he is. thank you mike for being with us. we will celebrate also in other cities. definitely i know that with your passion, your pride, and the support of the city and county of san francisco, of the state of california, and hopefully of the house of representatives we will be able to create new opportunities to be together and above all to have fun in celebrating the greatness of italian culture in the united states. thank you very much and enjoy with us. thank you. [applause] >> yeah. angela is asking me to mention that we're going to gather at 6:30 p.m. on montgomery street, 814 montgomery street. we will have jazz, opera, good slow food and opportunity for all of us to mingle and have a good time. i wonder if there is someone in the press that is following us if they want to ask questions?
of the participants, and nbc's mike viqueira is live on capitol hill. mike -- >> karen, yeah, forgive me i'm looking at my black bery -- >> i've got mine. we're standing by waiting for some news of something, right? >> exactly. i have got a couple e-mails out looking for readouts of w457d ov what happened over there. >> having been on both sides of this as a staffer, sometimes the fact that nobody came out and said anything -- >> you took the words right out of my mouth, and i was going to say you have experience in these things. the fact they haven't all rushed to the microphones and delivered withering scorn on each other. they've only been out for about 15 minutes, maybe we need to give a little more time. maybe that's a positive thing. what we do know, karen, heading into this is that the president was sticking by his original proposal more or less. he had gone back down from the $400,0 4 $40,000 level back to his original $250,000. that's what he was going to put on the table along with some other things. clearly not something designed to gather a lot of republican support, certainly not in the
colleagues on both sides of the capital for their work in bringing us all together. mike collins sponsored the resolution, thank you. one leader in particular deserves recognition for his extraordinary devotion to this cause and that is my good friend senator mitch mcconnell. in a few moments we will present miss suu kyi with the congressional gold medal and what a moment will be for a woman whose name means strange collection of bright victories. a quarter of a century ago, ms. suu kyi invited her countrymen to fulfill her father's goal to make democracy the popular creek. today because of the sacrifice of she and her supporters that invitation still stands, a bright victory indeed and one that we will celebrate today. as we do we can look ahead with a renewed sense of purpose, we can present this metal not only as a symbol of the highest honors but also of our highest hopes and for the hard work that lies ahead. because freedom isn't easy to find, it takes a long winding road. shortcuts are few and setbacks are many. america has known its fair share. the party led by men who refuse to gi
of recommendation. i appreciate all your work. >> mike is a terrific guy. [inaudible] >> he still tells us that story. >> it's a true story. >> it's good seeing you. >> i will personalipersonali ze a. >> senator, hi how are you? i was press secretary on the house side when i got there in 1988. my boss though clinger, bill is doing great. i see him all the time and he gave me a list. he said if you want to know how i think, here's who you pay attention and yours was the first name on the senate list which only had a couple of names on it. he was the chairman of the board of trustees for eight years. >> i spoke to him. >> i had dinner with him about six weeks ago and he is doing great. >> he is not doing the chautauqua any more. >> he says eight years is enough but he still has a home there and spends his summers there. thank you. really a pleasure to meet you. [laughter] >> i am still here is your bodyguard. >> who is that over there? the bodyguard. >> my editors told me to ask you one question. who are you going to support for the republican nominee? >> i am 80 years old and i voted for ik
, it won't make a big difference. one hope would be if someone like mike bloomberg and others under citizens united would step up and say we are going to stand and protect everybody who steps forward and votes for common sense mainstream gun reform. that might give them the political security to take on the nra and having investment to knock them out. >> i thought of that same thing. there needs to be significant counter weight to the nra. talking about the political reality, republicans obviously still in control of the house. we are focused on the fiscal cliff and whatever is going to happen with that. logistically, the time of the year. we are talking about months before there is going to be legislation that could be put on the table. what do you think could pully realistically have a chance of passing? >> i'm skeptical like you ever. i hope it plugs the loophole that they get through at the various gun shows. i hope there can be something on magazine clips. the thing i would most like to see is an attempt to do a buy back program back in 1996. if we did that and invested real mo
will be in a recession. last night, fox news repororted that a republican named mike kelly yelled into a microphone at an emergency meeting on plan b last night. he said really, we can't support our speaker. what is going on here? the big question is will john boehner keep his job? the house will be considered wi the speaker should be. you think he will make a change? >> someone who thinks john boehner is big mistake was planned the -- it was actually stripping the conservatives down from their assignment. that was the signal that he was signaling with the establishment crowd in washington. a lot of people can forgive john boehner for playing the cards on the fiscal cliff. he really doesn't have a winning strategy. because one doesn't exist. but i think the conservatives trying to buy a little upset. right now, there is no big name out there willing to challenge it. gerri: it is an interesting question. it seems like anyone who has that job is really hurting because everyone is all over the place. it is so hard to get them together. thank you both for coming on tonight, we really appreciate it. hap
around, mike mcintyre. mcintyre less san jose state for colorado. the military goal is in washington d.c. a kickoff set noon. >> public safety officials in east palo alto say that emerges repairs to a levee that separated dozens of homes from the san francisco-quito creek are holding up. the creek or float on sunday night causing mandatory evacuations for seven homes. at least one home was damaged to the point of being uninhabitable. no further work has been scheduled. but the city continues to keep a close eye on the levee. >> all the rain over christmas-a down the southbound side of the upper great highway from lincoln avenue to slow boulevard. a spokesperson at the centers is the department of public works say that the rose flood because the drains cannot handle all the water, especially during a powerful storm. drivers are being forced to take the lower great highway route. the northbound side is still open. officials say that highway close about 60 times a year. it is not known when the southbound side will reopen. >> the storm also brought down a massive tree in the east bay. the
spokesman offering hope. mike tobin has the latest from houston. >> reporter: the latest release includes a phrase continues to improve in association with the former president's condition. the staff around former president bush made an effort to be lighthearted with the releases and optimistic, acknowledging he's pretty sick and he's 88. he's in the intensive care unit for a stubborn fever brought on as a complication with bronchitis that caused him to be hospitalized back toward the end of november. the staff around him is being jewish in terms of information they're giving out in part because he's so beloved that people will overreact if they get information. we do know from the staff he has been conversational with the nursing staff that is around him. if you ever had an opportunity to cover this president, particularly since his term ended, he's a funny guy, a stitch a minute. consistent with his personalty he's cracking jokes with the hospital staff but he's taking it further and singing with the hospital staff. you can interpret that as a good sign all the while taking into conside
would mike to register you need a $300,000 cashiers check as a deposit. it was all going so well until the numbers came out. >> are the shoes included? >> they better be. >> shoes. that's great. >> 41 million when it's all said and done something like that. >> did i hear this right? 5,000-square-foot patio? >> deck. >> the deck. >> right on the cliffs there overseeing the beautiful bay. >> we need to win the lottery. >> someday. >>> business now. stock futures headed south as the white house stages that last-ditch effort on taxes and spending. erica ferrari of cbsmoneywatch.com joins us now with an early check on your dollars. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. asian markets guilty a boost on word president obama will meet congressional leaders again today to try to hammer together a last-minute plan to avoid the so-called "fiscal cliff." tokyo's nikkei gained nearly 1%. hong kong's hang seng added .25%. >>> news of more budget talks sent wall street on a roller coaster ride thursday. stocks ultimately ended the session lower for a fourth consecutive day. the dow lost 18 points.
. mike crapo comments xp chambliss and tom coburn and the turbine on the other side actually step out on a limb here and it will tell you where we are in tribal politics that when barack obama praised mccain and six, and need to see a republican senate immediately sent an e-mail to "politico" saying that kills the land. if he is for it, work instead. this is less about ideology now than tribalism. so that's the challenge we have and it's not encouraging moderates are providing space. it's intimidating them. getting into the question of every time i get people who live congress, look at republicans in the psyche been inside a tent we are breathing a gas and suddenly you're outside and say how could i have done not? how could i have acted that way? whenever ideas is to create a shadow congress that consists of former members who span the spectrum, to start a common set of facts and have them debate not in the way congress used to because congress is never a great debating society, the genuine debates and discussions that are going to have huge audiences but can provide a model for how v
year with no deal, our next guest says it might not matter who gets the upper hand at all. mike, happy new year. good to see you again. >> same to you. >> you're talking about a ten year time horizon even with all the drama that we're witnessing todaynd at uncertainty among investor, you say long term, i think you use the words virtually guarantees the focus on the ten year guarantees longer run sustainability will not be attained despite this battle. >> that's right. if you look at the long run projections, the problems really intensify after 2025 when the baby boom retirement interacts with rising health care costs. 2013 to 2022 basically misses when we really start to see sustainability issues get much worse. so i do think that the focus on the ten year horizon kind of guarantees that whatever solution we'll get doesn't address those longer term issues. >> i guess a lot of people would agree with you. is there any chance though that somehow congress finds some discipline deep down and surprises us all? is that even possible? >> well, one can always hope, but it certainly sounds like
of a fiscal cliff and they are still on vacation. >> let's go to mike in texas, on our line for republicans. >> i agree with the first guy. i wish they would have a little backbone and force obama and reid into not giving in to them. they need to set a budget and stick with a budget, and what they are trying to do is they want more money so they can increase the debt again, and they are about to run this country, as far as i am content. host: out the you think this will end up? caller: i hope boehner holds to his guns. i think the million-dollar deal is a good deal where anybody making over a million dollars pace a little bit more money, but i do not buy that $250 deal. host: that's good to marry in florida. c-span.e on caller: i believe the average american should not have to pay taxes. caller: you are going to need to turn down your tv, ok? caller: i do not have been on. it could be somebody else playing district. -- playing this trick. host: we will stay in florida and go to venice. did you see what minority whip hoyer had to say? caller: yes, i did, and being a democrat i go along with
republicans that came to the mike today came to the microphone to talk about entitlements here on the senate side, about medicare. they see that as the gaping hole in the united states budget and many of them are frustrated that so far there really has not been any specific plan from the white house to try and deal with it. also remember, unemployment benefits run out tomorrow. so the fiscal cliff actually starts tonight. >> jessica, it was an interesting statement put out recently by a republican thinker who said that he thinks the president -- peekispeaking of t president, there he is. >> good afternoon, everybody. for the past couple of months, i've been working with leaders of both parties to try and forge an agreement that would grow our economy and shrink the deficit, a balanced plan that would cut spending in a responsible way but also ask the wealthiest americans to pay a little more. and above all, protect our middle class and everybody who's striving to get into the middle class. i still want to get this done. it's the right thing to do for our families, for our businesses and for
